Glorianne Mattesi of Douglas Elliman has just listed the former home of Yankee legend Lou Gehrig in New Rochelle for $1,459,000. Located at 9 Meadow Lane in historic Residence Park, a neighborhood known for its fine period homes, this artfully renovated 1895 colonial was purchased by Lou Gehrig in 1927 for his parents. The current owners have overseen a complete renovation of the home, all while honoring its charming historic details throughout.
The exquisit residence boasts plenty of sun-filled living spaces that are finished with lustrous parquet floors, handsome fireplaces, beautiful windows, window seats and French doors. The gracious living and dining rooms as well as a modern kitchen are chic and elegant. A charming front porch is perfect for entertaining. The property also features mature landscaping and a detached garage.
Lou Gehrig’s former Westchester home is close to the renowned 130-acre Glen Island Park and beach on Long Island Sound, the Metro North train station, and the fine shops and restaurants for which the area is known.
Henry Louis Gehrig was an American professional baseball first baseman who played 17 seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the New York Yankees (1923–1939). He was renowned for his prowess as a hitter and for his durability, which earned him his nickname “the Iron Horse”. He was an All-Star seven consecutive times, a Triple Crown winner once, an American League (AL) Most Valuable Player twice, and a member of six World Series champion teams. He had a career .340 batting average, .632 slugging average, and a .447 on base average. He hit 493 home runs and had 1,995 runs batted in (RBI). He still has the highest ratio of runs scored plus runs batted in per 100 plate appearances (35.08) and per 100 games (156.7) among Hall of Fame players. In 1939, he was included to the Baseball Hall of Fame and was the first MLB player to have his uniform number (4) retired by a team.
